< report >I’ve looked through the VNDB for any information about the Neptunia series. When I found out it was deleted because it wasn’t technically a VN, I got confused. There are other visual novels on this site that aren’t full visual novels, such as Death end re;Quest and Corpse Party. Death end re;Quedt was also developed by Compile Heart, the same studio that made the Neptunia series, and that explains the similar gameplay styles in the games. If those stayed on the site, why did Neptunia get deleted?

Because Neptunia is too popular and it might overtake Muv-Luv as the highest rated VN.

< report >Because Neptunia is not a visual novel.
I think for death end request an argument can me made based on it actually having full VN sequences. It's what we call a hybrid here. In case you didn't play it, it has its own, completely separate "VN mode" taking place in the real world. 100% VN there, and it's quite a bit of content. Neptunia is just an Rpg. Nothing special about it.

Corpse Party is here, just because it always was. It's not a visual novel, but an adventure game. Other than book of shadows. It's one of those good old exceptions that were added at some point for reasons, and then kinda stuck around. You can't make it an argument for adding anything else though. That's part of the guidelines. Vndb has a few games like that around. Personally not a fan, but it's not an easy situation. Largely because visual novels changed drastically over time, and some games we'd not call a visual novel today, were basically one 20 years ago.Last modified on 2021-07-01 at 07:00
